[CES 2018] LG introduced its commercial robots last year and it has now unveiled three new work robots at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018. These new concepts have been developed for commercial use at hotels, airports, and supermarkets. Positioned under LG’s CLOi robot brand, the CLOi porter, shopping cart, and serving robot follow in the footsteps of the CLOi airport guide and airport cleaning robot introduced last year. Those robots are already deployed in a trial at South Korea’s Incheon International Airport.

The ClOi serving robot is capable of delivering food and beverage to hotel guests and visitors to airport lounges quickly and efficiently. The robot features a built-in sliding tray to transport the items. Once delivery has been confirmed by the customer, the serving robot will make its way back to the kitchen independently.

The porter robot has been designed to help reduce inconvenience for travelers by cutting down on long wait times and reducing slow service. It can also help in express check-in and check-out service at hotels by taking care of payment matters and delivering luggage to a waiting vehicle.

LG’s CLOi shopping cart robot has a barcode reader that customers can use to scan items and view product prices as they’re placed inside the robot’s bin. The robot’s face will also show all items on a shopping list and the companion app will guide the customer through the store via the most efficient route.

These concepts may be deployed in trials later this year.
